Sometimes a film can raise broader topics, and sometimes a reviewer may go off on a tangent. You seem to think that reviews should be in the form "I like/dislike this film because...," but there's more than one way to view and interpret a film. Some people don't 'color within the lines.'

Reviews discussing the subject are one thing, and I agree they can be useful (despite my previous comments). What annoys me, are reviews that have little to do even with the subject, using the reviewing section purely as a place to post political opinions on films that have little to do with politics (like, as I mentioned, a 1930s Chevrolet commercial). But, I was not talking about that... that's not what this thread was originally about: This thread was created about people reviewing other people's reviews, commenting on grammar and personal opinions and other stuff that has nothing to do with either the film or the subject of the film.

If they annoy you that much, why do you read them?

1. I don't go search for these sort of reviews on purpose, I just come across them very often while looking for stuff to download.
2. I'm at home all day with disabilty and so I have nothing better to do than to look for videos to watch on IA.

My suggestion is that you ignore them.

2. I'm at home all day with disabilty and so I have nothing better to do than to look for videos to watch on IA.

I sympathize, I have a condition that has kept me confined for long periods in the past. But it's the world wide web, the Archive is just a tiny speck. There are other things to see and do.

3. Why does me disliking them matter so much to *you*? You seem very offended by this thread. Should I partly delete these posts? Would that make you happy?

Complaining about others' behavior is usually counter-productive and often flames the situation. But I guess I'm guilty here. :)

OK, I'm sorry. I *am* a hypocrite, but I've been on the Internet since a I was a child and all I ever get is complaints. To me it seems everybody can do what they want except me, if I do what they do, it's me who gets told off, but never them. This applies with "real life" too. Everybody I know tells me off for doing the exact same things they do. I've have become bitter, and I've had enough....Sorry world, ok I'm sorry, I'M F***ING SORRY, WHAT CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY DID I DO THIS WEEK? It does not help that I've been waiting months for medication that works.

Oh God, I did it again, I've written another Off-Topic post about how angry, unhappy and annoyed I am with the world around me. This seems to happen every week.
